Healthy and truffles don’t sound like they should go in the same sentence, do they? When I think of truffles, my mind conjures up images of decadent, melt-away chocolately centers with an exterior crunch that is just enough to give some interesting textural contrast. But I most certainly don’t think healthy.
I decided to change that.
Not the decadent, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate part. I wanted to be able to serve them to friends and have them love every bite. But why not make them healthier so you can enjoy your chocolate without worrying about the calories hanging around your thighs?
I also wanted them to be dairy-free. That’s the newest food issue in our household. For some reason, my body stopped tolerating milk products after Nate was born. I’m still in mourning and desperately hope something changes, if I must be completely honest. But that’s a whole different conversation.
To make these truffles healthy, I needed the perfect vehicle. I thought about using cocoa butter to make a dairy-free chocolate but it proved to be more complicated than I wanted to undertake. I decided on beans. Black beans in particular.

Their gluten-free, refined sugar-free, GMO-free cornflakes got me through the first several months of my pregnancy when I could rarely stomach anything else. So, you can rest assured that I am sharing my honest opinion of their products.
